Charlotte Cupcakes - Southern Cake Queen

All year I’ve been trying to track down Southern Cake Queen. Since there’s no actual location, it’s hard to track them down. There is a food truck and they update their Twitter account with whatever location they'll be at, but whenever they are out serving cupcakes I seem to be busy or on the other side of the city.

Thankfully I was at Charlotte Douglas waiting for a flight recently. See, Southern Cake Queen doesn't have an official shop in Charlotte, but their cupcakes are sold at Phipps Bistro's location at The Charlotte-Douglas Airport in Concourse A.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cupcake

There weren't an entire slew of flavors to choose from, but there didn't need to be. If you eat Southern Cake Queen's Peanut Butter cupcake, you don't need much else. It had buttercream frosting on top and a Reese's chocolate as well.

The cupcake was soft and had a great, fresh Peanut Butter taste. The woman working the counter did offer to warm the cupcake up in the microwave since it was kept in a cooler. I took her up on that offer and I think it made the cupcake that much better.

It didn't taste like it'd been kept in the cooler all day though. It tasted like it just came out of the oven. If a cupcake ever melted in your mouth, it was this one.

The chocolate was a nice accent to the cupcake. Sometimes the additional chocolate flavor can ruin a good peanut butter cupcake, but it didn't in this case.

Blue Velvet Cupcake

I'd never heard of a blue velvet cupcake before, so I had to get it when I saw it.

Was it like a red velvet cupcake, but with blue dye? Did it have a different taste? I was about to find out.

I don't know if it actually did taste different than your typical red velvet cupcake, to be honest. However, I swear it did! The cupcake tasted like a really fresh, good tasting vanilla cupcake.

The frosting was a little bit crumbly -- not creamy -- but that may have been because it was kept in the cooler. Despite the frosting being stiff, the cupcake tasted amazing.

I officially like blue velvet cupcakes better than red velvet cupcakes.

The positives: both cupcakes tasted incredible (better than I was expecting for cooler-kept cupcakes)

The negatives: the somewhat stiff frosting on the blue velvet cupcake

The price: $7.58 for the both of them
